Marking the first time Heli Malongo had ordered Sikorsky helicopters, the operator made the purchase in order to set up Angola's first search and rescue service in order to allow the company to further support the burgeoning oil industry in Angola.[2] The three helicopters were delivered to Heli Malongo at a ceremony in Coatesville, Pennsylvania on 20 January 2011.[3]
